Toni Gattone is our guest this week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast. Toni is a garden speaker, educator, and the author of The Lifelong Gardener: Gardening with Ease and Joy at Any Age. She shares her tricks for adaptive gardening and gardening as we age.
We rely on our bodies to do the work when we dig trenches, plant potatoes, and harvest seasonal crops. But as we age or encounter injury we need to adapt. Toni shares her knowledge and experience so we can continue to garden with joy.
